On Monday, the Estonian Ambassador to Canada Toomas Lukk and the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia Janet Austin opened an Estonian honorary consul’s office in Vancouver, and welcomed Honorary Consul Evaleen Roy Jaager and Honorary Vice Consul Evi Olga Mustel in joining the extensive network of Estonian honorary consuls.
Lieutenant Governor Austin recognised Estonia’s digital development and noted in her speech that British Columbia could learn a lot from Estonia. She added that the activities of honorary consuls helped advance digital cooperation between British Columbia and Estonia.
Ambassador Thomas Lukk said that Estonia and Canada, including British Columbia, were like-minded countries when it came to digitalisation. “We share the understanding that the digital transformation is a chance to offer improved public services to the people and boost entrepreneurship,” he said.
